Album: Beast Mode
Label: UTP / E1 Music
Producer: C. Smith

Juvenile:“I wanted to make something for the women. I wanted to have a record that really made the women shake that ass as thought they were listening to ‘Back that Azz Up.’ It's something that mixed in good with ‘Back That Azz Up’ because the songs are both bounce records and they both are the same tempo. ‘Back That Azz Up’ may be a little faster but they both kind of compliment each other.

 

I'm one of those cats listens to my singles through my career and I can say, ‘Damn I really pushed the envelope, I really tried some shit right here, I took risks.’

 

“I feel like I have to make records for those fans. I don't think I necessarily have to make a record like ‘Back That Azz Up.’ I think that one did what it did, I'ma let that one rest in peace and hopefully make some more great songs for that fanbase but not necessarily making songs exactly like ‘Back That Azz Up.’

“Sometimes, I feel like once that book is closed you leave it closed and move on to the next thing. That's how I like to do things. I'm one of those cats listens to my singles through my career and I can say, ‘Damn I really pushed the envelope, I really tried some shit right here, I took risks.’

“I don't think many artists out here that took as many risks as me. I take risks. Like ‘Back That Azz Up’ was totally different from anything out there. If you listen to my discography it’s like, ‘Damn, single wise he took a lot of risks.’”
